New Table Runners and Pillows

In-between the cleaning and purging, I finally got out the sewing machine and made a couple of table runners and a new pillow.  I love the look of layering fabrics, so I used the black and white stripe and the black/gold metallic dot together.  I think this adds that unexpected touch that I love.

I kept the champagne bucket and candle tray, and just added the silver and gold mirror balls for fun.

 At Christmas I had a small bottle brush tree in the champagne bucket.

 I replaced it with the candle, some feathers, pods and pearl sprays.

The mirror balls are just fun, so I kept them out.

Minor changes for a whole new look.  How can you beat that?

Here's a little sneak peek at the pillow.  I will show you when it is all finished.

Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.

I am joining the following parties:

  16. Marty,
    Your table looks magical and sooooo pretty. I think your favorite new color is SPARKLE! So gorgeous.

  18. Your table looks fabulous! Love the amount of sparkle! Can't wait to see the pillow!

  19. Hi Marty,
    I love EVERYTHING about your table- drama and shine!

  20. That table runner can go ever so many ways. Your touch of glitz gives it sassiness this time, and I can't wait to see what happens next.

  21. I absolutely love this! It is perfect year round but even more so for New year because of all the dots ( in our country, polka dots and anything round is perceived to bring you good luck year round)!

  22. You are quite the talented lady! Gorgeous! :)

  23. Marty,
    You are one creatively talented lady, dear friend!!!
